It snowed at Comerica Park in Detroit on Wednesday night, and chaos appears to have broken out as the Tigers host the Yankees.
With snow falling, the first inning alone saw 10 runs, 87 pitches, 20 batters, seven hits and six walks as New York built a 6-4 lead. The whole inning lasted a shade under 50 minutes, according to ESPN Stats & Info, which isn't exactly a positive sign of progression in MLB's pace of play efforts. The Yankees would go on to win 13-4.

Seriously... it is snowing in Detroit.
The winter elements don't seem to be bothering the hitters too much, but starting pitchers Adam Warren and David Price probably aren't having too much fun.
